Xnspy Review 2021 – Monitor SMS, Calls, GPS, Apps, Websites
Welcome to my Xnspy review – the sixth reviews in my series of phone spying and parental control apps reviews.
When considering using parental control software, XNSPY is one of the most popular monitoring application intended to help you with the protection of your children from harmful content. But is it any different from the other monitoring apps available in the market or is it better than other spying apps? Do you want to know whether this app is right for your needs?
Keep reading! With the following XNSPY reviews, you can make a wise decision whether the XNSPY spy app is your best option for your parental control needs or not.
What is XNSPY?
Launched in 2013, XNSPY is a mobile phone monitoring software that records a target device’s online activity and uploads it to an XNSPY user’s account. This spy app is designed to give you access to your child’s phone information, including emails, call logs, social media apps, text messages, media files, and more. In addition, it also uses GPS tracking technology to check the location of your target remotely.
Specifically, XNSPY is designed for parents who wish to monitor their children under 18 years and employers who want to keep track of their employees through company-owned smartphones and tablets.
Is XNSPY Legitimate?
When using any spying or monitoring software, we may ask the same question, “is it legit?”
To answer this question, I spent some time going through SNSPY’s legal pages. It’s a lot of text in there, but what it essentially says is that Xnspy software can only be used for legal reasons by parents and employers and only after the legal consent of the device users. It’s illegal to use Xnspy for monitoring digital devices of your spouse, girlfriend/boyfriend, or partner. Failure to do so is likely to result in violation of applicable law and XNSPY will cooperate with the law-enforcing authorities to the full extent.
Therefore, please be sure to tell another person that they are being monitored before installing an app on their device. Other cases of tracking someone else’s phone will be considered privacy violations and result in heavy results.
